comment In writing a cover letter accompanying a submission to a literary journal, is listing publications in less well-regarded journals detrimental?
@LaurenIpsum if I could +1 your name for being one of the funniest puns I've ever seen in my life I would. :P

comment Are online critique groups a good substitute for editors?
If you could manage to get those people here, that would be helpful, as we'd like this site to grow. ;)

comment How to plan dialog and keep it on track?
I think you're selling yourself short, dialogue can be both natural and good. ;)

This is a totally appropriate question, he's asking if it's a good idea for his characters to speak like this, and if so he would like clarification as to the meanings of the words. I get the hesitation in having characters use words like this. With the understanding that he's asking about dialogue, this is definately a good question.
